  • South Korea Praises Trump's Summit with Kim Jong

Although human rights was not included in the joint statement signed by Trump and Kim, the U.S. president said he raised the issue and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to "do the right thing".

In the event, the two leaders showered each other with compliments in the sumptuous setting of a luxury Singapore hotel, a marked contrast from their previous rounds of mutual insults, such as "mentally deranged" and "little rocket man".

The US government made the video to help persuade Mr Kim to make a deal, a White House official said. Laura Ingraham, who, like Hume, is also on Fox News, said half of "the elites on the left" would rather go to nuclear war with North Korea than see Trump succeed.

Annual military drills between the United States and South Korea have been a major source of tension on the Korean Peninsula.

The Pentagon has since sought to reassure its allies of its "ironclad" security commitments.

A screen grab of a U.S. made video presented at the Singapore summit. A flurry of media coverage the day Kim arrived in Singapore showed him waving from the door of the specially chartered Air China flight that brought him from Pyongyang.

State media agency KCNA published an enthusiastic article in English praising the talks as a historic break from the past.

"It is a consolidation of the earlier achievement made during the Inter-Korean Summit of April 27 resulting in the Panmunjom Declaration between the leaders of the Koreas".

It will be the first ever meeting between a sitting US President and North Korean leader.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the focus was now on North Korea's response.

KCNA quoted Kim as saying that the North can take unspecified "additional good-will measures of next stage commensurate with them" if the USA takes genuine measures to build trust. He also said he hoped that this would be soon. "A lot. Number two, it is really something they very much appreciated".

KCNA said the two leaders "gladly accepted each other's invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved" relations between their countries.

World powers from China to Japan, the European Union and Russian Federation welcomed its outcome - while cautioning it was only the first step towards resolving the nuclear stand-off with Pyongyang.

Sen. Lindsey Graham does not have an issue with halting joint military exercises between the USA and South Korea while discussions with North Korea continue.

"South Korea is a little confused". "Once you resolve what's at the root of the conflict, which is the unresolved status of the Korean War, then all the rest will follow: denuclearization, retrieving the remains of the servicemen, human rights, all those things will follow, but the main thing is to fundamentally change the relationship from war to peace", Lee said. The drills help keep USA forces at a state of readiness in one of the world's most tense flashpoints.
